Hope House Home for Boys

The cards that I sell here in Chapala and Ajijic, Mexico benefit the dental program for the boys at Hope House in the nearby village of Ixlahuacan. There are close to 30 boys at the home and many of them come to the home having received no dental treatment. If you live here at Lakeside and would like to order a quality, hand crafted card for a special occasion and help me contribute to this worthy cause, please e-mail me at bettyinchapala@yahoo.com Card price is 50 pesos; the entire sales price is donated to Hope House.

Happy Birthday Naturally


I had a scrap strip left of the cork I used for my last card so I used it again for this one that I made for Speedy the Cat's Friends Challenge 42, which is a sketch challenge. I've used Annabelle Stamps -- All Things Grow, a Martha Stewart border punch, nestability oval and three stick on brownish-green pearls. Also, sponged a little green around the grasses for a "marshy" look. If you like making nature cards, check out the monthly challenge over at the Hot Spot. Their challenge this month is to use a natural element on your card. See Speedy's Friends sketch below.
